I received exactly what I ordered. I expected the coins to be of average quality. What I received looks to be Brilliant Uncirculated. Great Job!

  • Recognized Brand
  • Attractive Design


  • Poor Condition

The MS70 2012 Kangaroo and the MS69 2014 were flawless. However, I also purchased (2) 2009 1 oz Silver Canadian Olympic Thunderbird Totem (BU) coins. One of them was slightly toned which doesn't bother me, but it also had several nice nicks on the obverse rim. This coin is scruffy, and not problem-free! I am somewhat irritated to say the least. That's not BU.

A Canadian Winner

What a lovely, unique coin. I do admire the quality of the Royal Canadian Mint coins and this one is my favorite. I'm not sure whether the limited mintage of 569,048 will make them sought after in the future, but the design probably will.

Beautiful Commemorative Coin

By  Len

from East Hanover, NJ


I purchased this coin because it is a beautiful commemorative Canadian Maple Leaf coin which depicts the powerful Thunderbird design found on many totem poles in Canada. If you like commemoratives, this should be part of your collection.


from NJ


This coin is stunning. I'm not sure why these are not more expensive. The thunderbird design is amazing.


from CO


Bought a whole tube + 1 for showing off. With only three years of issue, they were easier to collect the whole set. I think 2008 was the best design, though.


from NJ


Nice (good looking) coin in the series of three. APMEX delivery was quick and ontime.


from CA


This coin is very attractive if you get one in your hand. I picked up a couple tubes before they got scarce. I'm sorry I didn't get more. I think I paid around $15 per coin for what I have.
